The Forum of the Arts was formed in 1961 and was the first organization to offer grants to the local arts community. In 1987 the Forum of the Arts Endowment was transferred to the custodianship of the Fine Arts Committee of the Museum of Ventura County, which continues to award the Forum of the Arts grants.
